Disney World Announced They Will Have Mask-Free ‘Relaxation Zones’ When They Reopen

Disney just announced that it will have certain mask free “relaxation zones” where guests can take off their masks for a short time.

This is good news, because Disney is now requiring all guests over 3 years old to wear face masks while on Disney property.


I must say, I am Team Face Mask when it comes to Disney World — and anywhere with crowds, actually. BUT, have you ever been to Florida in July, August, or September? It is freaking HOT and muggy!

I can’t imaging trying to wear a face mask in the Florida heat this summer. That is why I am waiting to hit the parks until it is much cooler outside!


There is no word on how many “relaxation zones” there will be, or exactly how they are going to work, but Walt Disney World Senior Vice President of Operations, Jim MacPhee, did acknowledge that they are, indeed, going to exist.


With the Disney parks opening in July, Disney has had to make the tough decisions about opening, that may not always be the popular decisions. But, going to Disney is not a right. It is a choice. So, if you choose to go, you have to follow their rules.


Disney is going to start with opening Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom on July 11th, and follow with Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios on July 15th.


Just like with Shanghai Disneyland opening in May, there will be similar guidelines implemented at Disney World.


To recap the requirements to get into the Disney Parks:

To enter a park, both a park reservation and valid admission for the same park on the same date is required

– Face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) and Cast Members; temperature screenings are required in some locations

– Some experiences—including theme parks—may be modified or unavailable to allow for physical distancing and limited contact

– Helpful technology and the My Disney Experience app will help you make the most of the magic

Disney World

As far as Dining Reservations, all the reservations in the near future have been cancelled. They are going to be operating on limited capacity in order to maintain the guidelines of social distancing.


FastPass experiences are being temporarily suspended, too.


Anything that draws a crowd — parades, fireworks, character meet-and-greets — they have been suspended for the near future.


Don’t worry. It’s still Disney. I can BET they will go that extra mile to make sure your experience is still full of magic and pixie dust.
